What are the advantages of back to wall toilets?
Sleek appearance:A back to wall toilet looks neat and trim. It’s visually appealing and suits the contemporary style of many modern bathrooms.
Space saving:Since the cistern is hidden behind the wall, it has a shorter projection length. This is ideal wherever space is limited, such as cloak rooms or small en suite.
Ease of cleaning: With no exposed plumbing, there are no nooks and crannies where dust and dirt can settle. Just a quick wipedown will leave your back to wall toilet looking shiny and fresh.
Cost: Many people choose a back to wall model because they appreciate the minimalist design of a wall-hung model, but don’t have the budget for the more complex installation required. A back to wall toilet gives you the best of both worlds: modern style at a modest price point.
Things to keep in mind before you buy the right one
Budget: These come in a wide range of price points. Having a price in mind will help you narrow down the options. Check to see whether the pan and cistern are sold together or separately. Don’t forget to include any accessories you might need, such as a seat, lever, or flush panel.
Installation: Make sure the wall where you would like to install your back to wall toilet can appropriately conceal the cistern.
Style: Not all back to wall toilets look alike. They may be rounded or squared, completely plain or with some decorative molding. While generally considered a modern look, the right one can nicely complement even a vintage-style bathroom with a rolltop bath.
Space:Such a format will take up less space than your average close-coupled or traditional variety, but has its own footprint. Check the measurements carefully to make sure that your chosen toilet will fit well in your wash area.
Upkeep: Because the cistern of a back to wall toilet is hidden in the wall, you need a convenient way to reach it for cleaning and repairs. You may want to install an access panel.
